All-Energy 2020 and Dcarbonise conferences will have 'monumental' impact
The UK's largest renewable and low-carbon energy exhibition and conference has a new person at the helm.
All-Energy, which takes place in May alongside the co-located Dcarbonise event, will be led by Peter Bloor, who has joined conference organiser Reed Exhibitions.
The 2020 event marks the 20th anniversary of All-Energy and will be staged at Glasgow's SEC on May 13 and 14, six months before the UN's COP26 climate change conference is hosted at the same venue.
Dcarbonise, which focuses on low-carbon heat, energy efficiency, and low-carbon transport, goes into its second year after a successful inaugural event in 2019.
Jonathan Heastie, of Reed Exhibitions, revealed that next year looks set to be another bumper year for the two events.
Mr Heastie, portfolio director energy, marine and rotorcraft at Reed Exhibitions, said: “Exhibition booking for the 20th All-Energy and second Dcarbonise is tracking at 15 per cent ahead of this time last year, which is no surprise bearing in mind the very positive feeling at the 2019 event.
“That attracted some 250 exhibiting companies and total attendance of 7871, 12 per cent up on the previous year.
“Our conference call for papers is open at www.all-energy.co.uk/Conference/2020-Call-for-Papers and ideas for complete sessions, individual presentations and panel discussions are coming in at a highly encouraging rate with decarbonisation, net zero and the energy transition playing an ever-increasing role.
“At the 2019 shows there were more than 600 speakers in our free-to-attend conference/seminar sessions over the two days.”
The call for papers closes on December 17.
Mr Heastie added: “Peter Bloor will be steering All-Energy and Dcarbonise over the coming years. It will be an exciting time for both shows as they play a key role in connecting people and organisations which have decarbonisation challenges with solution providers.”
Mr Bloor joins Reed Exhibitions having spent the past four years employed as an event director for BOND Events, based in Dubai.
He said: “I am delighted to join Reed Exhibitions, which is an outstanding organisation at delivering content driven by customer requirements,” he said. “There is no better example of this than the All-Energy/Dcarbonise exhibition, which is offering industry-leading solutions within the renewable and low-carbon energy sectors, alongside a world-class conference, which is the largest free-to-attend conference in the industry.
“Taking place six months prior to COP26 in Glasgow, the positive impact of All-Energy/Dcarbonise 2020 will be monumental.”
